Beginner Book

This is a great beginner book. Unfortunately, I have no idea how someone of his ability put that FSU created Gatorade? Are you kidding me! Wrong school, wrong city, wrong mascot, WRONG WRONG WRONG, how did this get thru everyone? Amby stated he was even involved with the testing of the creation of the product.
THEN, he said dont listen to music while running. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I only listen to audible while running, I guess I should not of purchased the book--delete.....
